Many of us in the Navy and the Army were exposed to Depleted Uranium (EU) ammunition. In the Navy, the Close In Weapons System (CIWS), an automatic 20 MM Gatling gun designed to shoot down cruise missiles used this ammunition. To load the gun, we had to handle the ammo extensively. When the gun fires, at 3000 rounds per minute, the friction of the ammunition progressing through the gun loading system left a haze of DU powder in the air! Now I have heard that the VA intends to handle DU claims the same as they NOW handle Agent Orange claims. Otherwise, if you were exposed, you are covered. I do not have total confirmation on this, but I did file my own claim. I recommend if you were exposed, you do the same thing. Much like Agent Orange and Mil-F-17111 hydraulic fluid exposure, the problems may turn up long after you have been retired or discharged. Also, the VA is notoriously slow in handling claims, especially from those of us already discharged!
I recommend you do a Internet search and compile your own information. Good luck!
